Kaisercraft Finalist Entry 2015 -2016

Hi everyone!

Here are my finalist entries for the Kaisercraft Design Team.

 I was sent two stunning collections to work with, collections that won't be available until later in the year. I have to say, both were simply gorgeous and had so many creative possibilities. I was asked to do a layout and a card for each collection....

so this is what I have done!

Silver Bells Collection

I am such a 'blue and silver' Christmas girl and fell in love this collection. It is primarily soft blues and pink with all the nostalgia and romance of Christmas. I love that the collection features snippets of traditional Christmas with many gorgeous Santa scenes. 

For my layout I went 'overboard' with glitter...after all, it is Christmassy! I glittered the background page and used texture paste, mists and more glitter with stencils to create a trail of stars. Then there were glitter frames to accentuate the photo and title and lots of die cut leaves. Oh and did I mentioned that I sparkled all afternoon!


"Believe in the Magic of Christmas"







 "Exploding Box Card"

I made one of my favourite cards with this collection. It is great for Christmas......full of surprises! When you open the card a box 'explodes' out of the card. Everyone really treasures these little cards and 'Silver Bells' makes it look all the more special.

 The front of the card.


 Of course I had to glitter the roses!


 The back of the card is sealed with a paper velcro closure.


Inside the card...minus the box!

 The card and box.

One side of the box.

 Another side showcasing a special photo.

  Another side.

 The final side. 

See what I mean about the collection, just love it!

Time Machine Collection

Gosh I love the colour combinations in this next collection and am sure you will too! 

I have done a cleaner more simple layout to showcase my stunning neice.



Torn paper, lace and Kaisercrtaft dies!

Kaisercraft wooden flourishes, mists, lace and paper pleating.

 Kaisercraft blooms misted with Kaisermist to co-ordinate.


 Card - "For a Special Person"

I have made a masculine fancy gatefold card with this collection.

The card closed with the punched 'Belly Band'.

 The back of the card stamped with kaisercraft stamps and room for a handwritten sentiment.

 The card when opened! How gorgeous are these papers and I love that Kaisercraft dies fit many of their paper shapes (oval).




So there are my entries. I do hope you like them. I love to use Kaisercraft products, they are easy to work with and the ranges are so inspiring. What can I say, I would love to be on their DT again...please wish me luck.
